JUST IN:  David Moyes provides update on Jarrod Bowen and Aaron Cresswell, amid Liverpool showdown.

The Hammers, who defeated Backa Topola 3-1 in their initial Europa League group-stage match on Thursday night, are getting ready to play in the Premier League again this weekend.

Due to illness, Bowen was unable to attend the game at the London Stadium, and Cresswell had to leave the field due to a hamstring injury.

Jarrod Bowen has had a sickness, so we’ll need to see how he is for the weekend, according to Moyes, who provided an update on the West Ham pair before their trip to Anfield. We seem OK to the others, in my opinion.

We’ll check on Aaron Cresswell, who had to leave the game on Thursday night due to a minor hamstring injury, but other than that, we should be alright.

With three goals and one assist in five Premier League games, Bowen has been one of West Ham’s standout performers thus far this season, helping the Hammers move into the top six.

In contrast, Cresswell has been forced to take a back seat to fellow returnee Emerson Palmieri and made his season debut on Thursday in the victory over Backa Topola.

the signing of Due to his suspension, Edson Alvarez was unable to play in West Ham’s Europa League debut, but his return against Liverpool will provide the Hammers a lift.

other freshmen recruits Additionally eligible for selection are James Ward-Prowse and Mohammed Kudus, who will be hoping to build on their successful campaigns after signing from Southampton and Ajax, respectively.

In West Ham’s first five games of the current campaign, Ward-Prowse has two goals and five assists to his credit. On Thursday, the dead-ball expert assisted Kudus in scoring his first goal for the team.

I’m glad [Kudus] has already had a significant impact on us, added Moyes. He and we are still getting to know one another, but he was very helpful to us last night.

James has integrated himself effectively. Due to his Premier League background, we believed he had a good chance of adjusting fast, but adding him gave us the opportunity to test if he could contribute goals and assists.

In terms of the contributions he makes to the squad, he is in many respects a player similar to Mark Noble for us.

On Sunday, West Ham will play at Liverpool in an attempt to win their third straight Premier League away game, but they have only had one triumph in their last 50 league visits to Anfield, a 3-0 victory in August 2015.
